Ask your doctor: Disposition depends on clinical symptoms and results of tests. Mibg scan shows functioning tumors such as pheochromocytoma .Symptoms of pheo include headache, sweating, palpitations, elevated blood pressure, anxiety.Nodule usually needs characterization by mri. Adrenocortical carcinoma can produce hormones with virilization and feminization.Some asymptomatic nodules followed such as benign adenoma.
